Question why is warez requesting not allowed?

why is warez requesting not allowed here?

who cares if it`s illegal.

just as long as you can play the full game, i don`t see the problems with getting warez games.

okok, i hear ya.

i don`t want to upset the administrators but why don`t you accept warez? it`s not like the authorities are gonna jail us or somethin`

police don`t give a damn about warez on the net!

and how are they gonna know if you are sending files with e-mails?

Actually, they can. This server lies in the Netherlands, at a campus, El Muerte can loose not only this forum, but also his connection if 'wrong' people find out that there are warez being traded on something that belongs to him

Tip: just look in the lba channel.

Also maybe we want to possibly ecourage the money-making potential of the brand?
The publishers still get money, and if Adeline has royaltie rights, then they still get money too.
And even if it is only the publishers, it helps if they see a brand is still making a bit of money.(ie. LBA3/LBA1GBA will stand more chance of sale's)

yeah but the e-mail can`t hurt!

just find someone on this server to send me lba2 files via e-mail and then delete any posts that have got to do with it!

sneaky is good

or use hotmail to communicate between sender and recipient and di-ve.com tosend them.

then get someone not from netherlands to send me the files.

el muerte would`nt get in trouble because we are from different places than nethelands!

gimme a reason why this can`t work!

we would not be trading on something that belongs to him.

hotmail or di-ve does`nt belong to el muerte so we can exchange any thing we want from there!

The only place where warez talk is allowed is either through e-mail, PM or the lba channel

Not on the forum

Why don't you try buying the game first?
LBA2 is still relatively easy to find (at least here)
LBA1 much harder, but still posible.

Basically, the only people with a decent enough connection are in the NL, so that's no use I think everyone here is trying to say that if you want to discuss this go to the IRC chatroom or e-mail because threads like these aren't allowed here, as you've probably found out.

Why warez threads are not allowed on this channel
First of all, warez is wrong. A lot of software (specialy games) have decent prices. Those developers need that money they worked for. If you don't buy the software the developers don't get credit/money.
Second, this forum is open for everybody. If you talk about illegal activities here you and I can get into trouble. Becasue authoritys will start to monitor you.
Third, the connection the MBN uses is a university connection, any commercial or illegal activities on my connection can be a reason to shut me down. In that case, no more MBN (the MBN is way to expensive to be put on a commercial host, daily traffic of the MBN is over 250MB a day avarage, and is using over 500MB of diskspace).

you can`t get those kinds of games like lba2 and stuff, that kinda game is as rare as gold around here!

i`m even lucky i HAD it!

so how can i get it?

does it run only on windows 95?
does it run on windows ME (millenium edition)?
is it really 35 MB in size because my friend told me it`s about 200 MB!

Thats the only reason you need...

Why don't you murder your best friend-
because its wrong and stupid and you'll go to jail

Why don't you sleep with your best freinds girlfriend-
because its wrong and stupid and you'll get your ass kicked

why don't you use warez-
because its wrong, stupid, it'll get you arrested, it violates one of the ten commandments (of which I believe in) aka "thou shalt not steal!!!!!!!!!!, and oh yeah, its wrong and stupid....

Okay, sorry, I was venting in my last post....

Yes, LBA 2 will "run" on Windows 95-XP. I don't know about 3.1 cause I never used it. LBA 1 however needs dos.

XP has not dos and has not a good graphics setup with the GeForce NVIDIA card because it f*cks up the screen, however, funnyfrog has created a patch about that problem (see the thread in "system problems")

I thought I did

basically, for those who didn't read my last post...



LBA 2: It WILL RUN ON ALL VERSIONS OF WINDOWS
LBA 1: It NEEDS DOS!!!!!!!!!

As far as getting LBA 2, unless you can order it, the only alternative would be going through your local game distributers...
you might be able to find it used/or in the classic bin, or maybe they could be really nice and order a copy for you...or someone could burn it for you (although THATS ILLEGAL TOO!)...or some kind soul on the MBN could order it for you and send it to you in exchange for $$$$???

I really don't know how you could get one unless you go through an online merchant...maybe you could beg your parents and be extra nice to them so they'll let you use their credit card...or ya know what I do...my friend has a similar situation to yours, so I order the stuff online with my card and then he pays me for the stuff...do you have a friend (locally) who would do that for you?

El: Most develoeprs these days are paid a flat rate salary, so it's usually just the publishers who lose out. Having said that, many salaries / bonuses are based on a 'sales' basis because otherwise a game could take 5 years to make and sell 25 copies, which is 5 years of full salaries to the development team but a negative turnover for the publishers.

Face it, warez is just like stealing; it is depriving somebody of money for goods. But what goes on behind the scenes is very different; in actual fact, many developers and publishers think that warez actually does the industry good, for one reason or another which I have conveniently forgotten. I think it was in the April 2002 edition of 'PC Zone UK' and I'll try to dig it out.

unfortunatly, i have no friend like that. we are all underage!

well, ya heard the dude.

basically, warez ain`t depriving game makers of money because they get paid major big bucks already.

selling warez free or otherwise will only contribute to money for the dude that sells them, no money wahtsoever goes to the game makers from sales of business dudes.

maybe game shops but for instance, the ppl who don`t give a damn and sell a few games ain`t gonna go give money to the game makers for the sales.

they`re just gonna be a greedy-ass bastards and keep the money all for themselves.

the only (maybe) honest game seller are those who have actual shops (buildings). the ones that sell off the street are just dudes who want to sell some illegal stuff like warez games and apps just to get some money!

a lot of ppl just want money ANY way they can! they don`t give a damn about illegal stuff, just as long as they get paid!

sad but true!

Ummm.....I'm going out on a limb here...but do your friends have parents? Maybe they would do it for you....also.....aren't you're parents willing to help?

If not, we'll write em' a letter about the MBN law that says "a child thirsting for excitement and entertainment shall not be denied his civil rights to attain a copy of and play the Little Big Adventure and any of its sequels both past and present...violation of this law is subject to cruel and unusual punishmens such as having a rabibunny grope you or have a dream date with Zed"....err...never mind.....

YURIC: NO! Did you read my post?
A lot of their salaries is now dependent on how many copies the game sells, as I explained above. And even so, the retailers and publishers still lose out, so it doesn't make it any more right to pirate games just because the developers don't lose out.
